Standard boiler plate: Help!!!
Trying to add Redhat 7.3 client to an existing Solaris 8 NIS+ domain. I am
so close that I can see it, but a couple of problems that may even be related.
Existing setup, names munged to keep security happy.
Domain - bar.gov
Sub-domain - foo.bar.gov
Server - Solaris 8
Client - Redhat 7.3 workstation install, gnome brought up at connect.
Trying to add machine to sub-domain.
Sub-domain server is my ntpd server.
I am following Marc Wrubleski's cookbook, with the following exceptions:
When I tried doing the nisinit -c -H <host>, got the infamous
foo.bar.gov.:Domain not served by this server
message. So I copied a cold start file from a working Solaris box and did
a nisinit -c -C <filename>. That worked, as did the keylogin. Left all of
the PAM stuff alone, figuring that if it was OK in Redhat 7.2, it should be
OK in 7.3. After a reboot; domainname and nisdomainname are right; keyserv
and autofs are running. I am logged on as root, so nisdefaults shows the
client box as the principal, and it is authenticated. A niscat works.
Now the problems.
A "nisls bar.com." works. No other nisls command does. They all fail with
foo.bar.gov.:Domain not served......
I try to log on with my working-on-Solaris-machines userid. I get logged
on and my home directory mounted. Because it is a very Solaris-specific
logon profile, a bunch of mounts don't work, and the PATH is really really
broken. I built a .bashrc that corrects the path, and everything dealing
with the client box seems to work. However, a nisdefaults shows my id as
the principle, and not authenticated. niscat works, nisls doesn't.
I have scoured the archive file. Not much there. Next question - Is there
a searchable archive online somewhere?
TIA, especially if you made it this far.......
